There are around 330 clean transport zones in operation across Europe, which help to reduce the amount of pollution and improve air quality in cities. The first such zone in Poland will start operating on July 1 this year in Warsaw. However, the restrictions associated with it will not affect the residents of the capital for now – Warsaw residents will be exempt from the restrictions until December 31, 2027, which will give them time to prepare for the new rules.

"The zone will have a new edition every few years and more and more new vehicles will be allowed to move around in it," Piotr Siergiej, spokesman for the Polish Smog Alert, informed.

A clean transport zone (SCT) is an area of a city where only vehicles that meet certain standards can move freely, which reduces air pollution. According to the Warsaw City Hall, the SCT will cover a total area of approximately 37 square kilometers, which is 7 percent of the capital's area. There are two restrictions: for cars with diesel engines – cars older than 18 years will not be allowed to enter the zone – and for cars with petrol engines – in this case, cars older than 27 years will not be allowed to enter the zone.
